Sometimes when you get a mail order colchicum it is already sprouting in the bag. I have read that if that happens, you should cut off the blossoms and plant the corm. I decided to plant the corm at the appropriate depth, but leave the flowers uncovered until after they bloomed.Please remember this is an experiment. I have no idea if this is helpful or harmful to the plant. This is Colchicum ‘Beaconsfield’, by the way. More on that tomorrow.
Three for Thursday is brought to you by Cindy of From My Corner of Katy: “Pick 3 pictures of plants from your garden … tell us about 3 books you’ve read that you want to share … rant about 3 things that bug the heck out of you … show us 3 pieces of garden art or 3 photos of egregious crimes against gardening … you choose what your three will be.” Just have fun, be creative and leave her a comment when your post is up!
